2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.

Zoey has a lot on her hands — being special to Nyx, having two or three boyfriends, being the new leader of the Dark Daughters, and dealing with a couple of murders and the evidence is pointing towards the House of Night. However, before she has a chance to solve that mystery, someone close to her dies. And if that’s not enough, Zoey will also have to deal with a betrayal that will hurt everyone close to her.

Like I said in the last review, after I finish reading/re-reading all the books that have been released, I’m most likely dropping this series. I just can’t take how the main character behaves and her personality.

Anyways, the plot begins to thicken with Zoey falling in love with at least three guys, humans from her old life dying, death of someone close to her, seeing “ghosts” of the dead fledglings, her powers growing, and a betrayal. So a lot more supernatural drama, however, the “high school” overruns the increase of supernatural. I know it takes place in a high school, but the teenage whining annoys me — a lot. Especially since the main character acts more like a baby than the other characters. However, I feel that the authors crammed all of this action into just a 400-page book. :(

After you skip over the high school drama and annoying main character, it is a pretty good read. The side characters in this book are so much more memorable and less annoying. However, the author describes the characters in the same way over and over again, like how the Twins aren’t really twins. *rolls eyes* Also, we get to see two more characters, Jack and Detective Marx, and they leave more of an impression than Zoey as well. And yes, this book is still using beauty and handsome as descriptions and very obsessed with that notion. In this book, I love how Heath acts — so sweet! I’m starting to like Aphrodite even more now, and I feel a little sorry for her. Oh, and there are now two gay characters, for those of you who don’t even want to see homosexual characters. Also, they still have a lot of talking about sex and other sexual themes.

Anyways, for the main character, Zoey, I think she’s even worse than Aphrodite, despite her saying that she is not like Aphrodite, mostly because she is messing/playing around with three guys — Heath, Loren, and Erik. :S Urgh! Zoey also doesn’t trust her instincts like she said she does, and I find her more judgmental and hypocritical than the other characters. Like how Zoey says she will trust others, but not Aphrodite — only her ability to see the future. I found her most bossy than even Aphrodite. Also, her friends are too starry eyed, even though she lies to them most of the time and snaps at them. Basically, I don’t like how her personality is turning out to be — judgmental, whiny, and hypocritical. :|

Overall, it was a pretty good read, but one of the parts is sad — almost made me cry. Anyways, this is rated a very low three star because I just can’t stand the main character. Also, it was only because the events are interesting and an original take on vampires that it made it to the very low three star.

2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.

Zoey Redbird has always thought of herself as a normal teenage girl, that is, until she got Marked. Now she is a fledging vampyre, training to become an adult vampyre at the House of Night. She will soon discover that she has she has more special powers than the average fledging. So, when she sees the leader of the Dark Daughters is misusing her powers, Zoey starts planning ways on how to bring her down.

I started to re-read this series, but I’m starting to regret it. After I finish the two novellas and the new release, I’m most likely dropping this series. This book is still as boring and irritating, if not more, as I remember. :|

For this series, it starts out pretty good and interesting by letting us know about her life before she is Marked and then how people treat her after being Marked by the Tracker. However, she soon goes through all of the teenage problems and complaints about her family. Let’s just say that it definitely sounds like a teenager wrote it — whiny, irritating, and thinks the world revolves around them. *rolls eyes* It’s supposed to be a young adult supernatural, but it feels like high school meets supernatural — emphasis on the high school part. All of those parts were very boring and irritate the hell out of me, and I wish it was a little bit less high school.

Anyways, out of the characters, I love the side characters and hate the main one. Zoey’s personality is so irritating and a hypocrite that it was kind of hard to make it through the book. Especially how even though she’s new to being a vampyre, she uses the “I have more power than you” card. Urgh! :| Zoey’s personality is one reason why I will be dropping this series after I finish what has been released so far. Also, one of the characters is gay, for those who don’t like that kind of thing. And for the descriptions of the characters, the authors tend to use beauty, handsome, and good-looking. I don’t know where they got the idea that those words describe a character, but oh well. It does say that this book is beauty and handsome obsessed. The descriptions for events are all right, and the events in general (except the high school teenage whining) were kind of interesting. :) Oh, and there is also a lot of talking about sex, kissing, and things like that, so beware of that.

Overall, it was a pretty interesting read, if you can past the teenage whining and annoying main character. :| Also, it would have been rated a two star, if it weren’t for the new take on vampires and mythology. But I would recommend this to people looking for a new take on vampires, as long as you can get past the high school. ;) So for me, think of this as a very low three star. :S

3/5

Raven finally gets to meet Stormy, Alexander’s sister. And now Raven finally gets to see what it is like to be a vampire in Alexander’s family. While Stormy creates the perfect storm around Dullsville, Raven begins to wonder how much Alexander actually loves her. Will she finally be able to become what she has always dreamed of?

Okay, when I finished the eighth book in the series, I didn’t think would read this book — mostly because the previous one was so horrible. This one was kind of average, but only a couple of things saved it from being a two star. So think of this as a high two instead of a three. Oh, this review will contain spoilers. >.<

This book takes place about a week after the last one, so you don’t  miss that much in between. Everything that was annoying in the previous book is still there (and still annoying). Raven is still very selfish and bratty, and several times I almost gritted my teeth and threw the book. And Alexander isn’t that much better — I was very irritated at the “easy” way he decided to go. Also, they get in a fight because Alexander thought Raven only wanted to be a vampire, not love him. Oh, granted, she likes Alexander, but she also loves the little side bonus to it too. It just annoyed me again and reminded me of Twilight. >.>” Also, Rave and Alexander often contradicted themeselves and what they believe in, especially when it came to Billy and Stormy. Another thing I found annoying was that Raven didn’t care enough to learn more about Romeo or Jameson until this book. For real, it takes nine books before a main character wants to know about major minor characters?

Anyways, the ending is not good. I didn’t like how predictable it was — since it is exact same thing as many books in this genre. Forgive me for hoping for something different. *SPOILER* For real, why change her while she’s still in high school and 17, with parents who are still alive and don’t know about vampires? At least Twilight waited until she was graduated and married. >.> *END SPOILER*

For this book, the only thing that kept me reading it was Stormy (Athena). Her personality really out-shined all of the other characters, even all the main characters. Also, her personality reminded me of how Raven was in the beginning of the series — cheerful, knows how to stand up for herself, and only a LITTLE bratty. And she even brought out a side of Alexander that we never got to see while Raven was with him. I also like how Stormy has more determination and fire about the RIGHT things. Some of my favorites scenes include Stormy: The  fall dance and the Star Wars costumes.

Overall, only Stormy saved this book. If it weren’t for that character, this book would have been a one or two star. However, she didn’t save me from hating the ending or the personalities of the main characters.

2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.

After Alexander’s parents finally leave, Raven and Alexander have to now deal with his best friend. Sebastian, Alexander’s best friend, arrives at the mansion and will be staying there for a long time, and Raven isn’t exactly thrilled at this new intrusion. However, she still grabs at the chance to learn new things about Alexander, but Sebastian falls for a mortal. Now Raven is wondering if that mortal will be the first to get bitten.

Oh, there may be spoilers in this review for this book and the other books, so beware. :)

I have to say when I first read this series I loved it. However, now, I’m starting to get impatient with this series and thinking why I picked this series back up. Also, when I first read this book, I liked it. Now though, I think it uses too many themes that have been repeated too many times.

This time you get to see only like one new character – Sebastian – the rest are old characters. Yet again you learn about Alexander, not through himself, but the new character. That would be okay, if the author didn’t use that method so many times. First you learn about Alexander through Jagger, then Luna, his parents, and now Sebastian. Couldn’t the author let Alexander say it himself for once instead of letting other characters tell Raven? Seven books in this series and still so little information about Alexander, which is kind of starting to piss me off.

Characters, descriptions, and even the plot are all okay, but it’s starting to get boring and a little cliché. And instead of making their personalities shine, I’m starting to see them decline. Okay, we know she’s Goth by now, we know she wants to be vampire, so why keep on repeating it? I’ve read the series since the beginning, so I don’t need those details. And like pretty much all the other books, it takes place only a couple of days after the previous one.

*SPOILER* Anyways, we are also seeing the same old basic enemies with almost the same mission as the other books. That’s right, Luna and Jagger are back and they are scheming something. :| *END SPOILER* Yeah, okay, so what’s new?

*SPOILER* The only thing I didn’t except was when Alexander starts telling Sebastian how he feels about changing Raven and why he hasn’t done it. *END SPOILER* A couple more things that made this book a three star instead of a two star are… You get to see another side of Matt – seems more brazen and stands out there more. Also, there are more scenes with Onyx and Scarlet, so you get to see their personalities develop a little more.

Overall, I found the book a little bit too cliché and boring. :| However, I’m still hoping that the author will do something unexpected and pair her up with Trevor, or, leaving Raven mortal for a vampire Alexander, or even, finding a way to make Alexander mortal. :)

2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.

Valentine Maxwell, Jagger and Luna’s little brother, suddenly shows up in Dullsville. Now Raven and Alexander have to find out why Valentine has befriended her brother. Even though she has to save her brother, Raven has another problem — how to ask Alexander to the prom. However, when Valentine reads Raven’s real and innermost feelings about becoming a vampire, she finds out how much of a threat he really is. Now, what is she going to do if Alexander finds out?

Oh, there may be spoilers in this review for this book and the other books, so beware. :D

This book takes place only a couple of days after the previous book. I didn’t really like this book for a couple of reasons, but I still enjoyed it. I’ll tell you why in a little bit.

Anyways, the plot thickens when Valentine comes into town and reads Raven’s thoughts. It’s kind of suspenseful, but it kind of goes downhill after you get the gist of the plot. :( The characters, even the new ones, are still great. However, I still have a problem with Alexander, he is too gloomy as the male lead. I know they are both Goth, but he could be a little bit happier to be around Raven. :|

Also, the descriptions are still wonderful, but I’m having this one little problem. Must the author keep on using the words “Goth” and “black” and other things like that? By the fourth book, I think we all get that Raven and Alexander are Goth and like wearing black. I don’t think you need to describe the clothes, if they are always black. Just tell us when it’s not black. >.>”

I have one more compliant about this book. Why couldn’t the author pick a new thing for Alexander to do? Now, this is a spoiler. *SPOILER* Why did Alexander have to disappear (again) to find Jagger (again) in the same town (again). *END SPOILER* Maybe pick a new town instead of doing the same thing over again.

Overall, the book is simple and quick read, but not really fun anymore, since Alexander keeps on running off. :|

2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.

Megha is a dowry bride in India. One day, she overhears her husband and mother-in-law talk about how to murder her. For fear of her life, she runs away to the only place where they won’t think to find her. Kiran helps hide her from his wicked relatives. However, when they begin to have feelings for each other, will this bring doom to them?

My feelings are pretty much the same as when I first read it. However, the redundancy got on my nerves more this time than the first time. And the fact that I endured reading the book again without smut just made my mood worse. >.>”

Anyways, like mentioned before, there is a lot of redundancy. For the first part of the book, it was really boring and makes you wonder why she put it there. Then, it turns out the author just repeats that part later on in the story, with only a little bit more detail. Also, this book is very slow paced with a little too much description. I was struggling to read the whole book again. :( It takes almost 200 pages for them to do gushy romantic things. :(

Even though there isn’t any detailed smut, there is several gushy, giddy puppy-love romantic parts. I don’t like reading that much romance without any kind of smut, if I do, I will read young adult books for it. There is sex mentioned and one not very detailed smut scene between Kiran and Megha, but other than that, you will get filled with romance and love. :X So those of you expecting more smut than romance, you will be disappointed, though, the romantic parts are (kind of) nice. ;)

It is sort of exciting with the characters, descriptions, and climaxes, but this book is not something I would read more than twice. The ending is very disappointing. I wish there was more of a complete ending as to whether or not Megha and Kiran get married. The point of this book, to me, was to mostly show women’s independence and how women, like men, can grow whenever something terrible happens and still lead a successful life.  It is a good book to encourage women to take a stand in things they know isn’t right for them or others, but as far as romance goes, it isn’t. :(

2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.

Ann, the queen bee/drama queen, overhears the men talking about witchcraft. So she, Mercy, Margaret, and the other girls get an idea… They start accusing people as witches, but how long will this attention-grabber last?

I love reading historical fiction, especially if it has romance in it, so I like this book a little bit more. I gave it a higher rating than last time because of the fact I wasn’t in a rush to read it like last time. ^^;

I really do not like the format of the book (evocative verse) since it made it seem like a very short read. It kind of reminded me of the Dear America books, but shorter and a lot of POVs (points of view). Which brings me to who narrates, Ann, Margaret, and Mercy are the main narrators. It was pretty interesting to have each different girl have a POV, and it was surprising that the book still had a pretty good flow to the storyline despite the multiple POVs.

Anyways, despite the feeling of the book being too short, the author still managed to give the girls a good enough personality. And somehow with these personalities, the author was able to make people pity them because the author tries to give the girls a good enough personality and enough background life to notice them. Another thing I like about this book is that you also get to see a new side on how the girls are treated after they put an end to the accusing. In other books I’ve read about the witch trials, I don’t think any of the authors end the accusing and how society treats them afterwards.

I like the idea behind the book, however, it feels like something was missing from the book — it could have used a little bit more substance, action, and plot. I definitely would have liked it even more if it expanded it with more description and substance to it. >.>”  Also, it felt more like a junior fiction book than a young adult book, despite having a little sex scene in it. >.< However, that scene didn’t go that into detail, so you don’t have to worry about it too much. ^^

The idea is worth reading, but the lack of descriptions, details, and action makes it feel too incomplete and short. >.>”  I like this book a little bit better than when I first read it, but not by much.

#Old_BlueBooks-3_5

Samantha has been away from the dating world for far too long, or at least according to her friend Pinky. Through a dating site, she meets Nathanial, a guy who will be more different than she could ever imagine. And Nathanial finds out there is more to Samantha than what meets the eye. What will happen between the two of them when Nathanial’s “friends” find out Samantha has a special ability?

It has been awhile since I have read this, but I guess it is a good thing I scribble down some notes about the books I have been reading lately, huh? :) Anyways, what can I say about this book that sounds kind of like a review? :P

This book is pretty much like any other vampire book I have read, but a little bit better. Even though the book is relatively normal for this kind of genre, I can still say I enjoyed it. Errr, well, since it’s smut, I can say I would enjoy it either way. :D I’ve read some of this author’s free reads in the past, and I can say this one is MUCH tamer compared to her other smut, so beware if you want to read her other works. :P Oh, and also, it is told by Samantha’s POV and Nathanial’s POV. :)

Anyways, things I liked about this book is that the author kind of puts in there about safe Internet dating like how Samantha brings her friend Pinky to the place of the date, so she can watch over Samantha (from a distance). I know most people wouldn’t think how the author put that into the book is a good thing, but I like to think there are hidden messages and advice in the books I read. :D

Second, the author actually describes her characters, including their hair color (most books just let the book covers do it). Also, I like how the main female character has a hair color that most main characters don’t have (red). Most books I read I either imagine the characters with blonde or brown hair, unless the author says otherwise. >.>”

Next, the author makes the shapeshifters kind of unique. They have three forms instead of just two (human and then their animal forms). Also, there were one or two animals I never read in shapeshifter novels, which was an otter and a kitten. *___*

The author also mentions several little things that I like or was amused about. Let’s see, she added in homosexual couples and male x male kisses (without the character being a “couple”). Though, I wouldn’t worry too much about it since there is only like one or two male x male kissing scene, and not very detailed at that. Also, she has a Nathanial who likes voluptuous women, uses old slang like swank and mod, Marcos somehow amuses me ♥, and how Nathanial talks like a grandpa telling you about the “old ways”. And lastly, how the author “mentions” how society is now more focused with sex now than in earlier days.

Okay, I am just going to list some things I didn’t like. The main female character doesn’t like her weight, which is so typical in many romance books. Everyone blames Thad, and I actually feel bad for him since he can’t get back together with the woman he loves.  Also, the smut started so late in the book. >.>” Oh, and the ending is kind of disappointing since the story kind of feels incomplete. And that’s about it for things I didn’t like. :)

Overall, it was an average book, but I mostly liked it. Though, before I end this review here are the warnings, there is a rape scene of a little girl and homosexual themes mentioned. However, both of these are not very detailed, so there shouldn’t really be a problem. Also, it feels like there will be a sequel, but I am not sure, since there are some things you really don’t know about like what happens between Thad and Isella.

Now on the run from the Lyle House, Tori, Derek, Simon, and Chloe, have to find Derek and Simon’s father, Kit, and his friend Andrew before they get caught again. However, as they try to escape from various new obstacles, they start discovering the truths behind the Lyle House and their powers.

Like the first book in the series, I’m re-reading and re-reviewing this book as well, so that I can make a better review for it. ^^

Anyways, comparing the plot and set-up of this book to this first one of the series, I like this book better. It had more descriptions, events, and other factors to keep you interested. Also, there are fewer plot holes since the author develops it more into a novel than an introductory one. The author kind of redeems the series by actually answering some of the questions, instead of having nothing but confusion and mystery like the first book did.

Also, the personalities of the characters seem a little bit better. At least, Chloe’s personality seems to be a lot better. She’s a little bit less pitiful and whiny than the first book, but not by much. The other characters still grab your attention more than the main character, but the change in Chloe’s personality makes it easier to pay attention to her narration.

This book makes it feel like the series is actually going somewhere with its more in-depth plot, change in the main female character’s personality, descriptions, and better and more complete ending. Anyways, it really is a better read than the first book, so go ahead and read this one.

2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.

When Jane’s best friend Allison sells her soul to the devil, she sacrifices her own soul to save her friend. But to make matters worse, she falls in love with a boy who is 116 years old, and she has to keep from being expelled from school.

When I first read this book, I really liked it. However, now, I’m not as impressed as I was then. The book is kind of normal for this type of genre. The friend, who doesn’t enough self-confidence, sells their soul. Then their friend has to save them, and then that friend meets a boy they most likely shouldn’t fall in love with. So, sort of common, but still kind of enjoyable with the slight romantic moments between Owen and Jane.

Not only is the plot very common within the supernatural genre, the book wasn’t long enough and didn’t have enough descriptions to keep my attention for a re-reading. Unlike the first time I read it, I didn’t find the suspense in it, despite only reading it only two years ago. I also wish there were a more definite ending to this book – especially between Owen and Jane. :(

Overall, I found the book incomplete, full of plot holes, not enough descriptions, and the characters too typical. So, I wouldn’t read it more than once. :(
